Tucson


We spent the entire day touring Tucson. This morning we visited the Titan Missile Museum. Wow! SO INTERESTING! Thanks, Jeff for suggesting this museum. It was so Cold War. We got to tour the underground silo and control room and more!



We zoomed back toward downtown Tucson to the Tucson Museum of Art. It's a lovely little museum, mostly housed in a group of historic buildings near The Presidio, with many modern buildings attached. We saw many examples of art from Mexico, South America and SouthWestern art from the American West.  There's a nice cafe' at the Museum where we had lunch.

There were many highlights in the Museum's collection, including a show of Josef Alber's pieces. I love graphics...they always give me ideas for afghans and quilts!

After the Museum, MaryJo wanted to visit the DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun. Our friend, Alyson, owns a few of DeGrazia's paintings and ephemera and urged us to visit. The Gallery was entirely constructed by the artist, Ted DeGrazia. It's made from adobe, rocks, wood from the area. It's quite an impressive building and grounds. We enjoyed touring the Gallery and grounds. His artwork is colorful and whimsical.

After resting a bit, our friend, Scott, dropped by our hotel. We reminisced about our old rock 'n roll days in L.A., then the four of us drove to Kon Tiki Restaurant for dinner. WOW! This place was built in 1962. It's beautifully maintained and a wealth of tiki-rific decor! The drinks and food were pretty good too!.
